This tour is pretty much expandable with guided or self-guided touring from the highest drop-off point. Guided touring requires avalanche gear and ski touring hardware/splitboard or snowshoes. You can rent snowshoes at rental place in Karakol city.

We can also manage your group transportation from Karakol city to the tour starting point. This service should be discussed separately.

What you should know

You will have to manage your transportation from Karakol to the starting point by your own unless we have a special agreement on this point. Basically a 4×4 truck costs about 1400 soms both ways.

You should understand that snowmobile seat can carry a driver and a single passenger. Second rider will have to lift holding a rope. This is quite easy for skiers and a bit tricky for snowboarders which requires a good strength and some experience.

Riding backcountry means high risks in getting trauma. Some slopes are avalanche-dangerous. Riding such areas requires an avalanche beacon, shovel and a probe, plus you should never ride alone and have an experienced guide within your group.
